Push the Boat Out!
Published 00:55 on 5 May 2017
As part of the RYA Push the Boat Out national campaign to get people to have a go at sailing, London Corinthian Sailing Club (LCSC) is offering the chance of a free taster session on the river in Hammersmith on Saturday 20 May.
Whether you're completely new to sailing or looking to get back on the water, LCSC will be one of the many sailing clubs and centres across the country taking part in the nine day event which runs between 13-21 May 2017.
Between 3pm and 5pm you can try a free 20-minute sail in a dinghy with an experienced club member on the River Thames in front of the Clubhouse (taster sessions available for anyone 14+ Years). Please call our office on 020 8748 3280 to book a slot in advance and for more details: including what to wear.
This is a great opportunity to see if sailing's for you. You could even stay and watch the sailing on the river in the early afternoon and have a chat over a club barbecue between 4pm-6pm (small charge to cover costs).
Mark Pearson LCSC Commodore said "We are delighted to be taking part in the RYA Push the Boat Out again. It's a great opportunity to invite the local community to come have a go at sailing and find out what the club has to offer. Book a slot – who knows you might just get hooked!"
Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it, you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements.
